Dominica has given a firm commitment to invest in LIAT 2020 Limited, Prime Minister Gaston Browne has said.
The new LIAT is Browne’s suggested replacement for LIAT 1974 Limited which is expected to be liquidated
Prime Minister Browne says he plans to move ahead with the creation of the new LIAT if his fellow colleagues do not wish to pursue that option.
Browne says he has already held talks with Skerrit who agreed to invest in the new airline.
“There are several countries already that have indicated their interest to invest. I don’t want to go as far as calling their names. This is no form of trickery, it is a matter of fact.
In fact, one country so far would have made a public statement, that is Dominica; that they will invest.
“So I can say that Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit and I would have held private discussions and he has assured me that on the basis there is a new LIAT that Dominica will invest.
“He said to me you can count on Dominica 100 percent and there are others,” Browne said.
